The building that houses
Gallery 28 is an
historically plaqued house
that was built in 1895 by
Mr. John Strader. The
structure was moved to it’s
current place on the
corner of Fourth and
Hamilton Streets in 1922
from the location of what
is currently the Geneva
Arcade building on West
State St. Shortly after it's
move it was purchased by
Dr. Paul Sabine, one of
the physicists working at
Riverbank Acoustical Labs
in Geneva. For a short
period of time it was the
Little Adventure School,
run by Mrs. Sabine after
its relocation. Afterward, it
was converted to a two-
flat apartment by Dr.
Sabine. Some of the
tenants were Dr. Sabine,
Forrest Crissey, and the
Eichman family. In the
1930's Herman Eichman
bought the house, and
family members resided
there until the 1990's. His
son Edward Eichman
repaired clocks and
watches in his basement
shop.
